I’ve recently started taking a look at ClassicPress, a fork of WordPress 4.9.8 (the one without the Gutenberg block editor). In order to test the migration from WordPress to ClassicPress, I needed a website which had PHP 7 (and due to my web host being crap; arvixe to those interested) I needed another way.
I was looking for a free webhost when I stumbled across Local by Flywheel which described itself as:
The #1 local WordPress development tool
This sounded like it would be very useful for the testing requirement that I had. In this series of posts, I’m going to be taking a look at the installation and use of Local by Flywheel. This post is the series index and will automatically update as each post goes live.
